  •  Nixon's Southern Strategy (5+ / 0-)

    Was more than including the disaffected Southern Cabal.  That would not have been suffiicient for victory.  It was joining the racism of Southern evangelicals and Baptists with the racism of urban European ethnics, especially Catholics.  A fusion of the George Wallaces and the Louise Day Hicks into a political recruiting tool that sucked the white working class out of the Democratic Party.

    Which is why today's Southern Cabal includes the Steve Kings, Michele Bachmanns and Sarah Palins of the the world.
